Not sure, but the concept has a potential to grow -- it's so lovely.
If I understand it well, VeriSign is trying to mimick root.openldap.org?

In general, it seems useful to offload Internet connections if that's an
easy configuration choice (which it is, starting with OpenLDAP 2.1.5 or so,
as Howard pointed out).  And in general, it's good practice in distributed
computing to avoid anything central, if possible.  And it is possible.

Those are my thoughts in a bit more detail.
